Is it safe to visit Delhi in December?

Delhi can be pretty safe provided you take certain precautions and be aware of your surroundings. Some of the things that you should keep in mind are



1. Don't travel alone specially after 10 pm. (this goes for both males and females)


2. Keep quick stunning devices (taser guns) or pepper spray with you. Regular sharp objects can also be used to your advantage (like keys and pens if stabbed with enough force can cause enough injury to your assailant)


3. Walk straight and tall and make eye contact with people around you. Don't potray yourself as an easy target.


4. Avoid walking close to a parked vehicle specially if it is a secluded area. Also many kidnappers/muggers/assaulters try to get you to come closer by asking for directions. Make sure you always answer from a safe distance.


5. Call the police helpline number 100 or 1091 (women and senior citizen helpline number). Be articulate and to the point when you speak to the operator.


6. Don't be overfriendly with strangers.



If you keep these points in mind, you will have a safe trip. Delhi is a great place to visit during December. It is quite chilly though. so make sure you are properly wrapped up.

Actually I want to make a holiday trip to Delhi, Agra from 25th December to 1st January. is it a good time to spend some days in Delhi ? Is there any weather issues ?
Yes, Delhi is great for sightseeing during winters. It does get cold here. But during the day, the conditions are mild warm with temperatures ranging from (15°C to 20°C). This weather is ideal for sightseeing. The temperatures start coming down as December comes to an end. The temperatures during this time can be 12°C-15°C (Max) and 2°C-6°C (Min). The mornings and evenings can be quite foggy, but it remains clear during the day (9:00 AM - 5:00 PM). For commuting within the city DMRC (Metro) is the best bet, as it is safe and air-conditioned.
